Dear experts

I have an yahoo plus account with maximum size 2GB, MY INBOX SIZED reached 2GB because of important  business messages, and I can't delete any of these message (actually I need all of these messages), I want to download all messages of 2005 into my outlook, and I want to keep the messages related to 2006 into yahoo website.

I thought it's an easy, but it's not. I created a folder in yahoo mail site, I named it 2005. Then I copied the 2005 emails (1 GB) into this folder, now how I can download these 2005 emails ONLY into outlook, and leave the remaining mails in yahoo inbox.
Please advice urgently.

Greetings, thabash !

You need to temporarily move the emails that you do not want downloaded to Outlook in another folder. Then download the remaining emails to Outlook. Then move the 2006 emails back to Inbox.

Best wishes!

After moving out 2006 emails out of Inbox, move the 2005 mail into Inbox.

Then setup Outlook to download the emails from Inbox via POP3 access

Do not check the box next to "Log on using Secure Password Authentication (SPA)."

You are a Mail Plus subscriber?  Check with Yahoo tech support to determine why POP3 access is not working.
